Abstract
The Seventh Joint Meeting of the U.S.-Japan Panel on Wind and Seismic Effects was held in Tokyo, Japan on May 20-23, 1975. The proceedings of the Joint Meeting include the program, the formal resolutions, and the technical papers. The subject matter covered in the papers includes characteristics of strong wind; response of full-scale structures to wind action; geological distribution of seismic activity; maintenance of strong motion accelerographs and data processing; strong earthquake motions and ground failures; response of hydraulic and building structures to seismic forces; aseismic considerations for vessels; recent revisions of design standards on wind and seismic effects; joint research program utilizing large scale testing facilities; and technological assistance to developing countries.
